Make this versatile set from swim knit for a water birth.  Use bamboo, merino, or cotton/lycra for non-water births.  This set is not designed for support - it is to cover the important bits while you labor.  

Great for postpartum milk bath or maternity photoshoots!

The bandeau top has very long ties that will wrap around your body several times!  This allows you to tie them however you like, including under the belly for support.  You can knot them on the front or the back of the body.  

The skirt is lightly gathered to a waistband with an enclosed seam.  The hemline is left raw.

About our Patterns


We aim for inclusive patterns that fit all bodies. If you don't see your size on this pattern, send us a message and we'll add it in!

Print Internationally

Our tiles have two layers, labeled A4 and Letter. US printers use the Letter layer, and everyone else can use A4!

Trimless Tiles

We designed our tiles to save paper and be easy to assemble. Place the guidelines on top of each other and tape or glue. The letter layer has solid guidelines with a star in each corner. The A4 layer has dashed guidelines with a circle in each corner. Each page has a number, and the tutorial has an assembly chart.

Copyshop Printing

A0 pages are 33.25" by 60" and are printable at most copyshops. We design ours to be printable in black and white. There are no passwords on any of our files.

Projector Optimized Files

Every pattern comes with a projector optimized pdf file. See what our projector file includes here.

Video + Picture Tutorial

We use pictures in our tutorials, not line drawings. We add in videos of steps that testers have a hard time understanding.


Our tutorial has a table of contents, along with bookmarks. This allows you to quickly get to the page you need.


When a pattern is updated, you will get an email notification. Since we are a newer pattern company, we are updating several times a year as our skills improve.

Download Instructions

Each download contains a zipped (compressed) file, for downloading all the files at once.  Download the .zip file, right click on the file and select "extract all". 

We also include each file individually, if you wish to download each file separately.
